SJP2Judge for yourself when you watch this footage but in my opinion, a section of Newcastle fans were an absolute disgrace last night at the FC Metalist match.

With rights come responsibilities and there was a great idea to get all the ‘singers’ congregating in the East Stand/Gallowgate corner to generate some atmosphere.

For the most part this worked, particularly taking into account a desperately disappointing thirty thousand crowd overall.

As always though it only takes a handful to spoil it for everybody else and now I’m afraid Newcastle United are sure to look dimly in terms of supporting any such ‘singing section’ again.

A few people lit flares and while it can look spectacular and is common place abroad, the simple fact is that Newcastle United will be punished for it.

We’re all losers in the long run. Geordie boys taking the p*** indeed.

Watch this exclusive video footage and you decide.

What is it with the current fad of "open letters"?

Sorry, but if anyone has burning issues for us all to read, please just bloody submit an article, not another 'Dear Mike.....'.

(Off my soapbox now)

If it is true what the club have been saying that "we ALL know mistakes have been made in the past, and the club have learned their lessons " then please tell us. What are you going to do about it. Or are they just false promises like the last time in 2009. ????

@toon tony and 12/13 with a 16th finish, avoiding a further relegation fight only because of a win against already relegated QPR in the 2nd to last match of the season.

In anyone else's world, it would be deemed a heartfelt attempt to achieve something. In the world of a megalomaniac sociopathic egomaniac, he'd no doubt snort and throw this in the bin while muttering something about another 'snivelling Geordie crybaby'.

This is a man who gambled and lost an alleged 300 million on HBoS shares while cheapskating the Club. The same with a 43 million gamble on Tesco shares while the Club has continually received minus NET spends.

Ashley thought he could reinvent football, his way. All he has done is shown he can make money, at the expense of the very business and brand (let alone City and community) he is meant to be building, promoting, and protecting.

He's been kicked out of Rangers which is something he certainly didn't foresee. Yes he may have a money skimming retail deal in place, but the 'Gers respond by not buying the shirts. His/SD interest free 5 million loan is now used against him, instead of for him and his takeover aims. He has 9% of shares which he can no longer trade, hahahahaha!

Ashley has brought nothing to NUFC nor football. He never will as taking is all he understands.
